Help shape the future of the Wolverhampton City Learning Region

On behalf of the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Wolverhampton we would like to invite leaders of Voluntary and Community groups from across Wolverhampton to attend the launch of the Wolverhampton City Learning Region initiative on Tuesday 17th October 2017, midday to 2pm.

The launch will take place at our City Campus in the heart of Wolverhampton and will provide an introduction to the concept of Learning Cities/Regions, the reasons for developing it, an analysis of the social and economic context underpinning it, and will ask your views on how we can work in partnership to address some of the common challenges facing our region.

 

What are Learning Regions?

Learning Cities/Regions is based on an international model driven through UNESCO which brings together key stakeholders (businesses, learning providers, voluntary sector and policymakers) to work together to achieve the economic and social transformation required through learning. To be successful the Wolverhampton City Learning Region initiative will need to be owned and driven by all sectors and the launch represents the first opportunity to shape its future.

Given the development of the Combined Authority and the Midlands Engine, the initiative must focus on Wolverhampton and its hinterland, whilst building across the region so we hope that you can join us to determine the direction and priority actions.

Presentations will start at midday and will be followed by a networking lunch until 2pm.

RSVP: LearningRegions@wlv.ac.uk by 3rd October.
